Went here because I was told this place is "hopping". This bar is a good size bar with a divider to separate the bar area from the pool table area. There was traps hanging from the ceiling, it is Maine. The Bartender was very personable and made very good and strong drinks. The place started to get going around 10. It seems like a local watering hole, kind of "Cheers" style but only in Machias. The age bracket was broad from early 20's to 60's but all the people were very talkative. I really enjoyed myself there.
